Add carrots, salt, sugar and just enough water to barely cover the carrots.
Cover and cook carrots on medium heat until tender.
(time depends on carrot size. I usually cook baby carrots for about 25 minutes.) Remove lid, bring saucepan to a boil and boil until water is evaporated completely, leaving carrots with a sticky, buttery glaze.
Watch carefully and stir so carrots do not scorch.
